Michele A. Casella

Casella, Michele, “Mike” or “Toni”, 85 of Boca Raton, Florida passed away on Saturday, January 30, 2021. He fought a multi-year battle with Lung Cancer and COPD. 

Born October, 17, 1935 in town of Rizziconi, in Calabria, Italy, Michele was a courageous and self-sacrificing man who immigrated to the United States for the betterment of his family.  Not speaking English and with no assurances, he provided new opportunities for his family and established the beginnings of a wonderful life for his children.  As he dealt with all life experiences, Michele faced his illness with quiet grace and strength. 

Michele will be lovingly remembered by his beloved wife of 20 years, Albertina, his loving children; Loredana, Cheti, and Anthony, and doting grandchildren; Tristan, Manoli, Niko, Alexandra, Michael and Gabriel, and great-grandchildren Lucas and Hailey.  Michele is also remembered by his siblings; Maria, Giuseppe, Angela, Luigi, and Diana.
